Re: Would you say Linda Young got better or worse over time?

Iconic isn't a synonym for "great". Iconic in this context requires the performance to be widely known and recognized as great. Having a woman's voice doesn't mean Freeza sounds androgynous, he sounds like an older woman. Linda Young always sounds like she's performing. She's over the top cheesy. A...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

So, it's probably already been posted about, but according to Sabat on Twitter , not only is that actually Chris Ayres back as Freeza (WOOT! Though I'm fully expecting some of the more intense screams might be done by Daman Mills in the film proper), but that's also Dameon Clarke as Paragus. Wasn't...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super: Broly" - Animation Hub [Updated: 14/07]

I'm surprised by how well the CG blended in with the rest of the animation. I didn't even realise that it was CG when I watched the trailer the fir...

Re: 2 Brolys

Alternate skins would be the most sensible option. Broli's main fighting forms, specifically his big LSS state, are still more or less the same, and even his outfits are still mostly similar. That's how I'd expect him to show up in Xenoverse sooner or later, as a new skin/outfit for standard Broli,...

Re: Would you say Linda Young got better or worse over time?

Even if you think it's good, "iconic" is a step too far. Young's portrayal wasn't androgynous. It wasn't the Ziggy Stardust of DBZ performances. It was an older woman playing a character who is supposed to be an uppercrust gentleman/psychopath, but instead comes across as an over the top vaguely se...

Re: Would you say Linda Young got better or worse over time?

I am a fan of Linda young , I think that she is great as frieza , and I think she was iconic as genkai. I think the same way you do. I couldn't think of a more fitting person to voice Genkai, they really got the cast spot on for Yu Yu Hakusho. She was a good fit for Genkai, and I didn't think her a...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

Secondly - sorry, the trailer gives away too much! We now know that there'll be some backstory filler and that Broly shows up, trashes Vegeta, trashes Freeza and trashes Goku, very likely prompting Goku to use UI (because there is no way in hell that isn't happening) I could have told you all that ...

I thought it was interesting that 17 wished for all Universes that had been erased to be restored... Could that also bring back the 6 universes that were originally erased by Zeno before the ToP?

Re: Is toriyama gearing up to step down?

I actually think Toriyama prefers how he is working now. It's way more chilled out than when he was doing the original manga, and almost an advisory position at this point. He sets the key events and markers, creates new characters, but the laborious task of piecing it all together is done by someon...

Re: Official "DB (Super) 2018 Movie" Discussion Thread

I honestly feel we have come too far to be reverting back to a saiyan arc gi. I'm not mad at all, but it's just an underlying issue i have with it. I do love Goku's now iconic Gi that he's had since the Cell arc, but it was still frustrating to see it come back after getting a new outfit in RF; the...

This is entirely untrue. Please don't make things up. Automated tweens have nothing to do with loose designs. Even if they did, Dragon Ball's key animation is not digital. ?!?!

Re: "Dragon Ball Legends" Official Discussion Thread

Why have they gone with 3D models for a mobile game? It's nonsensical, specially after FighterZ. BANDAI already did 2D fighting DB games on Android/iOS devices so I assume they want to try something somewhat new, that being, 3D behind-the-shoulder combat. Besides, you just tap on it and that it's, ...

This makes a really weird assumption that every person reading this — and furthermore that every single fan — is male. Dragon Ball is not some exclusive boys' club.
